“They said a storm is calling this way but we’re still waiting. Lives carry on in Hong Kong as traces of civic upkeep morph into sites of remembrance. Decorative structures mimic nature then occasionally malfunction, transforming common spectacle to warning signs. The light urges to tell us something but can't quite get its point across, patience tested for another day.” — Simon Liu 

Simon Liu

Simon Liu (Hong Kong, 1987) is a film artist whose work centers on building a lyrical catalogue of the rapidly evolving psychogeography of his place of origin in Hong Kong through alternative documentary forms, abstract diary films, multi-channel video installations and 16mm projection performances. Liu’s work has been presented at film festivals and museums globally including the New York Film Festival, Toronto, Sundance, The Shed, M+ Museum, and an upcoming solo presentation at MoMA as part of their Modern Mondays series.
